“A Wildly inventive and surprisingly playful sci-fi thriller.”—Washington Post
Roommates Jaimie Locke and Kim Calloway are each looking to find a new life at college. It’s Jaimie’s first time Outside—away from her large, complicated family and their magical traditions—and she wants to learn what nonmagical life is like. Kim is anxious to escape the depression that’s been dragging her down since last year so she can make new friends and create the art she loves.
But almost as soon as they unpack, Jaimie realizes that Kim’s depression is different from normal sadness. Something outside of Kim is literally forcing her to be depressed, pursuing and draining her. Just like that, the two girls—along with Jaime’s cousins and a Presence named Rugee—try to capture and rout the creature that is following Kim.
No one said that college would be easy....

Quite simply, I'll read anything Nina writes. I was touched by what this book had to say about friendship, including its darker and more painful elements. I liked the two main characters right away and they were easy to care about. Any fan of the genre would do well to sample Hoffman's brand of urban fantasy and this book is a fine example to start with.
I really love this book its really interesting book. Kim is your everyday girl trying to survive collage and leave behind a horrible event that occur to her in high school. While Jaimie is your average witch trying to blend in with humans. Kim and Jaimie end up sharing dorms and.. wait I giving too much information you must read and it has romance.^^
